The Emerald Empress continues to recruit for the new Fatal Five over in Supergirl. The group now consists of her, Magog, Indigo, and a re-imagined version of Selena (the villain from the Supergirl movie).

It's actually because everywhere outside the U.S. the yellow smiley face is owned by The Smiley Corporation and has to be licensed for use. Within the U.S. the smiley is in the public domain. DC finds it easier to do different covers than pay the licensing fee for its use.


okay thank you Lightning Lad, that is really an interesting insight. smile

The Tornado Twins are in Flash #26.

And they're bad guys now because Barry Allen was a terrible father. Big surprise there.

So in today's Supergirl Annual, the Emerald Empress's origin changed and she's now from Orando instead of Vengar. Her backstory sounds more like Falyce from the last Legion annual, but without the mutilation.

That is assuming the story she tells Chase is true. It's awfully self-serving.

It's also possible that she was always from some other world, like Orando. She conquered Venegar with the power of the Emerald Eye, and forced the people there to declare her their Empress, but I don't know if it was originally said that Venegar was her home world...

OTOH, I'm not a fan of the Orando choice, just because I liked her end with Projectra, and how she claimed a kinship that Projectra didn't recognize (if she was actually from Orando, it would have confused the themes of that scene, IMO, and it was a great scene).

Or maybe this time The Empress is really the big sister of Projectra... stolen from the royal cradle for Haga (or another villain), raised for a poor adopted family.
Can be a good twist!

Sarcasm Kid, I went ahead and read both Bombshells United #1 and #2. I haven't read any of the previous series, but it seemed necessary. For such a short book, there were a whole lot of unexplained references to people unseen. At the beginning, they kind of went through a list of characters that must've been in the other book, but they were obvious analogs to familiar DC female characters, so even without details about relationships and what had gone before, no problem. Unfortunately, with the exception of "the Wonder Woman", none of those appeared. Someone named Donna Troy and someone named Cassie Sandsmark were there, but neither of them seemed to be Wonder Girl, or had been. At least, not that was mentioned. Instead, there was a flurry of references to other characters that may or may not have been in the story or been important to the plot. Again, this title has very few pages, so there wasn't a whole lot of room for explanations. I had no problem following 5YL, but I really didn't get what was going on here. I did really like the style of art, which also added to the feel that it was 1943.

As far as Dawnstar goes, she was in three panels and had two lines, on of which was simply, "Diana!"

This comic takes place in 1943, the last one took place in 1942 and the conflict primarily focused on the Nazis in Europe. "Bombshells United" is focusing on the aftereffects of Pearl Harbor when America tried to intern its Japanese American citizens. Donna and Cassie didn't appear in the previous comic, this was their first appearance in the Bombshells universe.

Marguerite Sauvage tweeted artwork of Dawny in the next issues so there's going to be more focus on her.

From what I understand, Bombshells United is going to be more about spotlight stories on particular Bombshells (which makes the title an odd choice.) If it's handled well, you should be able to follow the stories and not worry about the other characters mentioned. Hopefully you should meet them all one by one and get filled in as you go.

I read the first half of the original series, but after the first yearlong story wrapped up I felt like I needed a break and never got back. I may dive straight back into the new series if it's got WW PLUS a Bonbshell version of Dawnstar.

In this week's Supergirl, she defeats the Empress by destroying the Eye (Tears it apart). The Empress fades, presumably back to her own time. Supergirl confirms the Eye is thousands of years old before she does the deed. The other Legion note of interest is that Mr. Bones is revealed to have manipulated the Emprress into the attack and also mentions that the "Hit" on Saturn Girl may not have played out as expected. So presumably Imra's still out there somewhere.

You got that right.


I'm nigh invulnerable. I have the reflexes of an Olympic-level jungle cat. I have the strength of 10, perhaps 20 men: a crowded bus stop of men. But my greatest power is this: when destiny speaks, she speaks to me.
She says hi, by the way.

I take it those are celebrity cameos. Surely, not everyone grins like an idiot in the midst of a crisis? Unless they're all behind the end of KFC's millennia long existence? Has everyone *really* forgiven them for their part in the McWars of the 22nd Century?
